      John Francis Anthony "Jaco" Pastorius III (1951–1987) was an American jazz bassist who was a member of Weather Report from 1976 to 1981. He worked with Pat Metheney, Joni Mitchell, and recorded albums as a solo artist and band leader. His bass playing employed funk, lyrical solos, bass chords and innovative harmonics. As of 2017, he is the only electric bassist of seven bassists inducted into the DownBeat Jazz Hall of Fame and has been lauded as one of the best electric bassists of all time. (From Wikipedia)
